It appears they have had pretty good attendance since moving to The Staples Center.
the Clippers have one of the WOAT owners, and can't get rid of him. historically he's run his team like Harold Ballard, that's changed a bit lately now that they've gotten some good players that he hasn't run out of town. another GTA team would likely be one of the wealthiest teams in the league immediately (presuming they don't get stuck with AIDS ownership). obv that doesn't guarantee any kind of success, but it is an advantage of sorts, even in today's league.

also in the context of Katz being a total [censored] about this arena deal in Edmonton (apparently talks have broken down again, and the city has stopped negotiating with him). he wants his free stadium like all his US owner buddies, but that hasn't really ever been a common practice up here. seems like Edmonton is bending to his whims a bit, but not breaking.

Bluffing as in if you give us a bad deal we won't even bother coming back, dunno. Maybe he's just drunk, but there's 0 chance he passes on $11M to stay in mother Russia.

7 minutes left in the 2010 Olympic final between USA and Canada on TSN. Canada leads 2-1.

Don't tell me how it ends.

I just thought of something.
Dustin Penner goes the Ducks.
Ducks win cup.
Dustin Penner goes to the Kings.
Kings win cup.

Sharks, you know what you must do.

Sure didn't work for us...

I'm pretty Dustin Penner being on the Stanley Cup winner twice has about as much correlation as Ty Conklin being on 3 Heritage/Winter Classic teams.

Nothing to do lockout wise but City of Edmonton walks away from Arena Deal.

Katz is turning into a slime ball but has all the leverage
